Often praised as one of the most original and innovative metalcore bands, Converge formed in 1990. 2001's Jane Doe was the Boston-based group's breakthrough album, a landmark work that's always included in the "best of" conversations. The Dusk In Us is the 9th full-length from the "heavy-music innovators," and it retains the grit and punk-metal energy of the outfit's previous efforts, while also displaying natural progression. Vocalist Jacob Bannon states: "our songs are all rooted in our real-life experiences." Perhaps this is why Converge records, including this one, never fail to feel honest and vulnerable, and the personal nature of the lyrics, set against thrashing guitars, pounding drums, and shrieking vocals, is where the magic lies with this album. Highlights of The Dusk In Us include: "I Can Tell You About Pain," "Under Duress," "A Single Tear," and "Reptilian." Brace yourself for a "dark and hopeful, abrasive and melodic, devastating and powerfully cathartic" listening experience.
